|Crossing Lines Anthology, Art Waves #34|
Poets Ellen Jaffe and James Deahl are among many writers who came to Canada from the U.S. during the Vietnam War Era. Their work has been included in the anthology Crossing Lines: Poets Who Came to Canada in the Vietnam War Era, edited by Allan Briesmaster and Steven Michael Berzensky. Early July, with its Canada Day and Independence Day celebrations, seemed the perfect time to discuss Crossing Lines.
